Genesis Battlegreen Run

The Genesis Battlegreen Run is somewhat-hilly road race through the historic town where armed Americans first stood up to the British army, firing the “Shot Heard Round the World” at the Lexington Battle Green.

The race has two courses–a 5K and a 10K. Both courses feature hills that make a PR unlikely…and both bring the runners past the Lexington Battle Green.

After the race, local restaurants reward the runners with excellent sandwiches, pizza, pasta, salads, and other fare–some of the best post-race food to be found anywhere.

Come! Run with me now…

Fall Frolic 5K

In its inaugural run, the Fall Frolic 5K drew 350 runners to the rolling, tree-lined roads of Beverly, MA. The race raises money for the PTO of the Cove Elementary School and four other elementary schools in Beverly, so it’s not surprising that many of the runners are kids and their proud parents.

No one crosses the finish line with more intensity or joy than a little kid!

Incidentally, this is my 14th race that I’m running barefoot–bringing me to 50 miles of barefoot races.

Come! Run with me now…

Lone Gull 10K

The Lone Gull 10K is exactly what you might imagine when you envision a race along the New England Coast. Nearly 700 runners race through the salt air, past an expanse of blue ocean and white spray…and then sit down to a hearty breakfast.

After the race and the breakfast…be sure to hang out to enjoy some late-summer rays and surf at Good harbor Beach!

Come! Run with me now…
